I wanted to see what "Lizzie McGuire" was up to when I checked this movie out.

I wanted to stop watching it after the first 20 minutes or so, but I convinced myself that it might change.

The only saving grace was "Julie" played by Evan Ross. He played his part well. I loved it when he says to Greta, "Do you ever let your force field down?" So true!

I really enjoyed this movie! It definitely proves the point that family and friends mean everything to a person. At the end of the day, love unites all!

After her mother, Karen (Melissa Leo) gets married for the third time, 17-year-old Greta (Hillary Duff), who had witnessed her father kill himself, withdraws within herself, and turns rebellious. In lieu of boot camp she is sent to live with her maternal grandparents, Katherine (Ellen Burstyn) and Joseph (Michael Murphy) where she makes it known that she is determined to kill herself. She then falls for a cook, Julie (Evan Ross) at the local restaurant, much to the chagrin of her grandparents - especially when they find out he had been interned in a juvenile correctional facility. Faced with all-round opposition and unhappy with her life Greta plans her suicide during a boating trip - a plan that will not only expose closeted skeletons, but also shatter and change everyone's lives forever.

“Well, at the same time, I’ve been making this list of things that I want to do before I die. For instance, I want to eat a bug, just to say that I did. Uhh I want to get in a fistfight with a grown man…don’t ask. I want to learn how to really paint and.. maybe get a tattoo. Anyway ,as soon as i choose my method of death, then I’m going to cross as much off my to do list as I can…then commit some kind of grisly suicide. Voila. you won’t have Greta to kick around anymore.”
